Does anyone have any good recipes that use wild foods? I read recently about how wild food is so much healthier than commercially grown food (a lot more vitamins, etc.), so I'm trying to use more wild things in my diet. So far I've just been adding wild greens to my green smoothies, but I want to use wild food for other meals as well.
I love the way your thinking! I been getting wild blueberries, get a huge bag at like cosco and put them on everything they are highest antioxidant levels fruit and since it's wild it is picked from the wild and practically untouched and uncultivated when grown!, I been putting them in my SP Complete and rice protein raw protein shake with young organic spinach and blackberries and raspberries and wild blueberries and strawberries, sorry I don't have any recipes, but maybe I can find something, I can try to find something wait.. My hollistic nutrtitionest has a couple really good cook books and they are wonderful let me see if I can find something!
EDIT: not just wild foods, anything raw and organically grown or even conventional organic is better then commercial unwild.
The only thing you will find wild is like berries, everything else is grown either organic or commercial.
So grown Organic is basically just as good as wild!
Make sure your hydrated before you eat this
and have something with some good fats.
So the balance doesn't throw you out of homeostasis.

Wooooo foraging!!! The quality of wild food depends where you are. Some areas (like mine - north-west Ireland) have a big variety of wild edibles, but other places can be a bit tough. Do your research, there are loads of books about wild food out there. Even standard plant identification books and websites sometimes tell you what's edible. And I wouldn't worry about recipes. The flavours of many wild plants are so much more intense than anything you can buy that you won't feel the need for fancy combinations!
